This captivating program from Brighton-based Wild Dream Films tells us the stories of three men – Russian mystic/former traffic cop Vissarion, Filipino pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy, and former British M15 agent David Shayler – who each claim to be the Son of God. Each self-proclaimed Messiah has achieved varying levels of success and notoriety – Quiboloy’s church, The Kingdom of Jesus Christ, claims to have as many as six million adherents, while Shayler also made headlines in the UK for his whistle-blowing against M15 and then, some years later, for living in a squat. The program features interviews not only with each man, but with several of their followers.
